Samantha Stosur defeats Serena Williams, wins US Open 2011
Serena Williams was considered to be the favourite to win the finals of the US Open 2011 against an Australian player, Samantha Stosur. The Australian girl had other plans as she won the match in straight sets. The score read 6-2 and 6-3.
SERENA WILLIAMS suffered defeat on the hands of Australian player, Samantha Stosur in straight sets during the finals of the Women’s US Open 2011. The score read 6-2 and 6-3 in favour of Stosur. It can be termed as one of the upsets of the US Open, as Serena was the overwhelming favourite to win the match.
It is for the first time that Stosur won a grand slam. She was very excited and happy as she lifted the US Open trophy in the air at Flushing Meadows. The match lasted for 73 minutes.

The match did not start on a bright note for Serena Williams as she abused the umpire too, when she was penalised for a point. After that she could not focus on the game and the Australian player took full advantage of the game, hence ran away with the match. Still, there is no running away from the fact that Stosur played better on the day, which counted the most.

The crowd present for the match were cheering for Serena Williams as she was the local favourite. The crowd wanted a US player lifting the title. But, it was not to be, as Stosur outplayed Serena during the match. Stosur played a very good game, as she was hitting her ground strokes very clean.

It was a great day for Australian women tennis too, as Stosur won the US open title. The last time an Australian Women won the US Open title was 38 years back in 1973 by Margaret Court Smith.
